can agree on george bush deserves no credit for that war. you would never know it from yesterday's white house briefing. i mean jay carney was asked about the administration's reactions to the anniversary. he said, we are glad the war is over, we salute our men and women in the military. a reporter from fox says well, if the iraqi people are better off because saddam hussein is no longer there, you have to give george bush some credit. i almost fell off of my chair. jay carney said, of course we give george bush some credit. no we don't. no we don't. everything george bush said about the reason for starting that war turned out to be a big, fat law. no weapons of mass destruction, no nukes, no navy no air force, no justification for war. yes, our men and women in the military did a good job in iraq. but george bush gets no credit for starting that war in the first place. hey, see you right back here tomorrow. have a good one. >> this is "the bill press show." ♪ theme ♪ >> well, it's day three of the hostage negotiation known as he will's park sit
killed this morning in explosions across iraq. that's exactly ten years after then president bush announced the u.s. invasion. most of today's attacks were car bombings around baghdad, including one near major government offices and foreign embassies. we're still getting information in on that in terms of casualties and injuries. elizabeth, you first, ten years later, where are we? well, it's a very difficult anniversary. no one remembers this fondly at all. the iraqis certainly don't remember this well. they're not marking this anniversary at all. i also think that the war changed fundamentally the way the united states thinks about war. look at how reluctant the president is right now to intervene in syria in a serious way. look at how reluctant the pentagon was to go to war to intervene in libya. look at how long the afghanistan wars lasted because of what happened in iraq. we're in a very sober place right now. also, we have to remember, nearly 5,000 american men and women killed in uniform killed as a result of this war. i should also -- i should also tell you, i am at this p

their opinion. under george w. bush fell to a low of 12% approval. obama was elected. approval was 92%. the study population of haters? now, people who make discriminating judgment on the basis of how they assess the new leader of the same country and many western europeans and people in other places weren't happy with the leader they saw as an articulate proponent of unilateral u.s. action to seem to have a swagger and a second in the interests and opinions. when the president left office, a new president seemed to be good at articulating why was in the u.s. interest to behave multilaterally, to see cooperation and so forth and also embodied a set of ideals that people like about america like the united states is a land of opportunity where anything is possible. so there isn't a deep and underlying consistent hatred of the united states. that's actually quite rare. within foreigners are able to make distinguishing judgments about different aspects of the united states. >> host: why should we care what your think of us? when's the last taboo roster with that of angela merkel? >> guest
, this is -- part of her problem was also that she is old news in the sense that clintons and bushes alike, just ask jeb bush, these are names that people have been talking about for over 20 years. and there's a real sense out there on both sides of the aisle that it's time for a change. i also think, look, historically the idea that a presidential, that a party can hold on to the white house for three terms in a row is very, very rare, it's very difficult, and the idea that hillary clinton is the woman who can do that i find a little unlikely. i don't think barack obama's popularity transfers to her. if you watch that "60 minutes" interview with hillary clinton and barack obama, you could see why barack obama is more popular than hillary clinton as a politician, because he's a much more dynamic and engaging personality, and hillary just did not seem like she was a particularly interesting person or exciting person to listen to or follow. jon: "the washington post" is out with a poll on gay marriage that is kind of an outlier. the fox news poll and other polls taken til now have said the country is

. bush in the end of his administration tried. president obama didn't touch it much in the first term. now he says he's going to try but the big difference is the things that keep the israelis and palestinians from the bargaining table are still there. they feel good about the conversation a month or two or three, are they back at the table. >> the president's in jordan today. what's the focus there? >> reporter: syria. syria. syria. jordan normally a key u.s. ally in trying to nudge the palestinians on some issues. one of the few arab nations that has relationships with israel. but the refugee crisis coming into this country from syria dominated the discussions. king abdullah has a country with a tough economy to begin with. they've spent nearly $1 billion. they say they are approaching half a million syrian refugees and they think it will keep getting worse. the president promised about $200 million more. the united states is already giving quite a bit of money to the syrian refugee crisis but he promised to ask congress for $200 million more. most of the effort was on the refugee c
are in the bedroom and not the bedroom -- border. and the press is allowed to paint president bush as a conservative for gun-control who put everything on a credit card, the press gets away with painting him as a big belt buckle conservative when the reality is that that line in the san has always been true from the press. it is an uphill climb. 86% 76% democrats. when you say that experiences shaped the world, i agree, but if we get out of the bedroom -- and the press asks a conservative, personally, on abortion, they would say would be for personal responsibility. host: -- guest: you touch on two important aspects. with respect to getting out of the bedroom and into the board room, i would agree with you. as a fiscal and social conservative myself, i make the case -- i am much more libertarian, i guess, which is why i am excited to see what brand paul is doing in terms of redirecting -- rand paul is doing in terms of redirect recover station. we create this inherent conflict by saying that we are for individual liberties and freedoms and the ability to make choices in your life, but on the other h

-oxley act of 2002. [applause] >> it was overwhelmingly passed by congress and signed by president bush following the last big round of corporate scandals involving enron, tyco, and worldcom. it was supposed to restore confidence in american corporations and financial markets. the sarbanes-oxley act imposed strict rules for corporate governance, requiring chief executive officers and chief financial officers to certify under oath that their financial statements are accurate and that they have established an effective set of internal controls to ensure that all relevant information reaches investors. knowingly signing a false statement is a criminal offense punishable with up to five years in prison. frank partnoy is a highly regarded securities lawyer, a professor at the university of san diego law school, and an expert on sarbanes-oxley. >> the idea was to have a criminal statute in place that would make ceos and cfos think twice, think three times, before they signed their names attesting to the accuracy of financial statements or the viability of internal controls. >> and this law ha
they announced that the people who felt that rove represented the failures of the bush years and so on, that was a red flag and you are seeing the reaction to it. >> bill: okay. but having talked to karl rove many, many times on this program, i can tell you that he is a guy who doesn't want a conservative litmus test to limit some candidates who may be more moderate and appeal to a wider circle. he doesn't want that kind of party where i think sarah palin does want it i think republicans are are going to have to come to grips with that. >> well, they have to decide in some cases whether they're willing to settle for a candidate who has a better chance of win hog may not be as pure on a conservative. >> that's what the romney situation was all about. and romney failed. >> very bold in that. >> they are. but they are congenitally unhappy. i have been covering this stuff for decades now. there are people in the republican party and in the conservative movement who are seldom happy except with certain candidates. if those candidates get nominated and have to go on and make the compromisees
adviser in the bush 43 administration, cre currently on the advisory committee and former cia officer, bob bear. this video we just showed from the assad regime, shown on syrian state television. want to show it again. it's supposedly a victim suffering from a chemical weapons attack. no one shows any physical signs of injury, no con vumgss, no vomiting. three experts say that judging from what they see here, this doesn't seem like a chemical weapons attack. knowing what you know about these type of agents and their effect on humans, do you agree? >> you know, it's difficult to tell without examining the patients. and you need sophisticated equipment to do that. a lot of the symptoms you're seeing in these patients could be caused by insecticide, for instance. any organo phosphate which saron is, but the fact that so few people have died or if any have died tells me that this probably wasn't a sar ron attack but we can't rule out some sort of diluted vehicle. >> the regime is saying it's the rebels using chemicals. if it was something like a diluted chemical, dispersal agent or something,
